Video Interview with Christoffer Holm of VENGEANT
By Sheri Bicheno

Hello all! Sheri here…

This time, I am sharing with you a lovely and deep chat I had with the equally nice Christoffer Holm of Swedish Symphonic Metal band Vengeant!

Vengeant are a brand-new International band, with their vocalist Danae Komodromou hailing from Greece! Currently, they are working on their forthcoming, debut, EP, with their first single ‘Angels Battle Cry’ released in February 2021. Their second single ‘The Unreal’ will follow on 23rd April. Both will be available on all major platforms!

I discover that there is a particular and interesting theme to the much anticipated, forthcoming album with Vengeant and one that will delight many fans of collectible and tradable card games.

Watch this space…

Hello Everyone, It’s Victor!

I’m incredibly pleased to share with you my recent interview with Raphael Olmos!

Raphael, the founder/guitarist of Brazilian Thrash Metal band Kamala, is about to release his first solo EP “Make Riff, Not War”. I talked to him about this new EP and how the constant tours by Kamala, in Europe, are helping him and the band reach new heights outside of Brazil.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Raphael very much for his time!

I hope you all enjoy the interview.

Video Interview with EMPYRE
By Sheri Bicheno

Hi all! Miss Bicheno here! I am back with another interview…and this time I had a really insightful and lengthy video chat with Did Coles (Lead Guitar) and Henrik Steenholdt (Vocals) of Northampton, UK based Rock band Empyre.

After playing in a successful cover band and wanting to expand on creating their own music, Empyre formed in 2016, catapulting into creating a range of ballads with atmospheric and hard rock layers. Due to play Planet Rock’s Rockstock this year and with more gigs being announced all the time (including a support slot on Mason Hill’s upcoming 2021 UK Tour in September) and all subject to Covid restrictions being lifted, Empyre have a string of stages they have frequented around the UK over the years and if you listen to their stunning offerings with added Acoustic versions, you will see why!

After my Skype cut out our introductions (doh!), have a watch of the interview below with these brilliant guys!

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Video Interview with GRANADA

Video Interview with GRANADA
By Victor Augusto

Hello all, It’s Victor!

If someone asks me why South American bands, perhaps, have a kind of unique aggressiveness in their way of playing or in how they express themselves with their music, I would say it is the consequence of all the crap we have to live with in a continent full of cultural richness, but that, at the same time, is also full of misfortune. Despite the good things, all South American countries are “cursed” by poverty, corruption and violence. Obviously, all of this suffering reflects in our society and, consequently, in the music that emerges from here.

Recently, I took some time out with Guille Estévez and Marcos Edward, of Argentine Metal band GRANADA, to talk about their last release “Amarre”, that is composed of five tracks, and which reports a view of who witnesses and experiences the suffering of living in a dysfunctional family. All the tracks have videos on the band’s YouTube Channel, illustrating the themes in the lyrics, along with the laws that criminalize the particular abuse that is the subject of each song, as well as the phone numbers to report those crimes in Argentina.

I would like to thank Guille and Marcos very much for their time and for talking about these issues!

I also send thanks to DJ Joker (James Jones) from Metal Messiah Radio and Raphael Olmos, singer/guitarist of Brazilian Thrash Metal band Kamala for joining us as special guests.

I hope you all enjoy it.

Video Interview with Vice – Alma Inn, Bolton – 20/07/2019

Video Interview with Vice
Alma Inn, Bolton 20/07/2019
Interview by Beth Jones

Hi All – Rick Here

Back in July Beth and I attended the Alma Inn July Showcase in Bolton and a wonderful time we had. That particular event was headlined by Manchester based Metal band Vice, who, in case you don’t know, are just a bit good!

You can check out our full live review of the event here:
https://ever-metal.com/2019/07/28/the-alma-inn-july-showcase-2019-the-alma-inn-bolton-20-07-2019/

We had actually first interviewed Vice back at Hammerfest in 2018 but when we listened back to the audio, for some reason, there was a nasty hiss and squeal over the whole conversation making it impossible to transcribe. With that in mind we made sure we video interviewed them at this gig to make up for it and then the technical gremlins struck again when we tried to watch back and upload the video. However, we have persevered, and can now bring you the full interview. It is a little dark in places but audio is fine. Just remind me that if we are asked to interview them again then I’m going to do it in shorthand!!

We would like to send huge thanks to Tom, Connor and Aiden for the interview and apologise to them for the delay, although I think one of them must have a weird magnetic force field that disrupts recording equipment!!

Here it is!
